One guy here made the back wall of his bus into a hydraulic ramp. They haul a small car.

Like that?

I've seen rear mounted bike lifts rated to 1000 lbs. They are about $1100 and I am considering one to carry my Yamaha FJR1300

Dang....It'd be sweet to have a bike to zip around after making camp. I thought I had made the decision"No" when I took out the chair lift, but this thing...

Old lady would punch me in the head if I bought a bike. It's been about 14 years..

A lot of us think a smaller dual sport fills the bill in a bus. You can go to the local market or do a little exploring.

Mopeds RULE for stowing away in a bus and cruising town or camp once you're there.

Depending on the bike, a chair lift can work wonders.

I like everything on the inside of the bus so it can't get messed with, not that people ever do that.

Quite so, but I have a specific reason for needing to carry the FJR.

I compete in Long Distance Endurance events, and I want to take my bike and my family to different locations.

We have two scooters and I plan on putting one of those on the front.

I used to have a Jawa. I found it in pieces at a yard sale. I put it together and it ran wonderfully. It was a cool bike.

It had a thing where you'd push the gear shifter in with your foot and flip it the opposite side and it would be the kick start. This was long before the interwebs and it took forever to figure out dual-use for shifter.

I too had a Jawa.

It was a 70's Jawa 250 California.

Not the best bike I ever owned, but I was a poor teen and it was cheap.
